The State of Geneva convened a CEO-Level converstion on global security at Davos and announces the launch of the Geneva World Security Forum

    Davos/Geneva (ots) - On 26 January 2006 the State of Geneva convened a CEO-level meeting on global security in new technologies at the ski resort of Davos on the occasion of the Annual Meeting 2006 of the World Economic Forum. At the event, Pierre Francois Unger, President of the State of Geneva announced that they will establish the Geneva World Security Forum, an annual conference and trade show that gathers global stakeholders to identify the security trends and challenges, showcase security solutions, debate the political trade-offs attendant to security and exhibit the latest security initiatives.

    Over fifty-five CEOs from business, government and civil society gathered to identify security themes, trends and challenges. Participants identified better coordination between the public and private sector as a priority to ensure the timely delivery of good will to crisis zones. Organizations were advised to have clear security principles to ensure good governance, management and enforcement. As society becomes more security conscious participants warned that governments should take a holistic approach that includes stakeholders from civil society, business and government.

    The meeting themes included security related topics on: civil rights; supply chain security in humanitarian aid; security challenges and solutions; corporate reputation and enterprise security; and identity and rights management.

    Geneva is home to a highly skilled labour force that supports Switzerland's leading edge in private banking, insurance, bio-and-high tech, and pharmaceuticals sectors. A city that is conscious of its neutrality, familiar in assuming a role as mediator and proud to be the home of the European headquarters of the United Nations, the State of Geneva is well positioned to host a global dialogue and exhibition on security.

    In early 2005, WISeKey SA, a leading Geneva-based company offering e-security and ID management services and products, Geneva-Palexpo and the State of Geneva initiated a conversation that led to the conceptualization of an annual security conference in Geneva that will be established to include three conference streams: a conference that will bring high-level stakeholders to Geneva to debate security issues; a trade show that will exhibit the latest security innovation and initiatives; and a training centre that will provide education and training on security applications.
